In many offices across the Oklahoma City metro, administrative professionals are holding everything together. They’re keeping things organized, making sure people get where they need to be, and greeting employees and customers with a welcoming smile. And while many business owners and executives say thank you often, we’re rapidly approaching the special day set aside to celebrate administrative professionals.
Prom season means it’s time for wristlet corsages and boutonnieres for high school sweethearts or groups of friends on a special night.
We recently created 32 centerpieces, 330 little girl corsages, and 250 boutonnieres for the dads for the City of Oklahoma City Parks and Recreation Department’s annual Daddy Daughter Dance. Lilygrass was honored to be the florist selected to provide the flowers for this fantastic event this year!
This is the fifth year that OKC Parks and Recreation has hosted this event, but it’s the first year they added the surprise of including corsages and boutonnieres as part of the ticket price. You can probably imagine the looks of joy on the little girls’ faces when they received their wristlet corsage!
Fresh flowers can brighten up a room in any season, and it’s an especially nice touch when you have house guests. A simple bouquet in a guest bedroom or bath or some bright blooms at the kitchen table during breakfast makes an everyday event seem just a bit more special.
There are a variety of ways to incorporate them into different areas around the house, such as kitchens, bedrooms, bathrooms, and common areas. Decorative glass and ceramic containers already displayed in those areas can be used as long as they can hold water.
Antirrhinum are commonly known as snapdragons or dragon flowers because they resemble the head of a dragon opening and closing its mouth when squeezed from the sides. That’s a fun way for a flower to get its name, right?
They’re native to the United States, North Africa, and the rocky terrains in Europe. There are two distinct species of this unique flower, the garden snapdragon and the lilac snapdragon, though neither can breathe fire as far as we know.
